punctuated with speeches here and there. Walk out door a
week ago, fall on thick ice that covers the streets. Fall hard. Get
up, go to hill, anyway. Not sissy, after all. Hurts. Come home
after two runs. Week later, still hurts. This morning get X-rays,
MRI… and some wonderful news from wonderful Ortho doc

Very serious fall, doc says… huh! He’s a little surprised.
Because the injury isn’t serious at all. Hurts but not serious.
Instead of usual thing with this fall – crashing to ground,
twisting this and that, tearing ACL and other tendons, breaking
bones – I fell straight. I only went down on one knee,. Back,
core and holds firm. Weird. And it matters, he says. Very
lucky old chap.
Not lucky, he says. Hugely important to exercise… be in
good shape. You are in wonderful shape (sigh) with strong
core, great quads and tight joints. Very good shape for anyone,
and remarkable for little old chap, like you. Or words to that
And that, my dear friends is because I am such a good kid
about this nut-case exercise regimen you (I hope) and I follow.
This would likely have been much much worse… if I didn’t do
all this tiresome crap.
